Unlocking True Happiness

1st 3 Sundays each month

Note: The Oct. 21st class will be led by Ven. Drimay

Keys to Personal Healing and Global Transformation

The Sunday morning series “Unlocking True Happiness” at Land of Medicine Buddha is an opportunity for newcomers and old friends to explore the Buddha’s teachings as they are applied in our daily lives, to deepen our experience of genuine well-being and meaning.

“Unlocking True Happiness” topics combine ideas from Buddhism with those from the fields of positive psychology, Western philosophy, and current events. People from all faiths and backgrounds can apply the principles explored in this series to enhance their lives. Examples of topics we will explore in this series are gratitude, forgiveness, self-compassion, the emotion of “elevation,” myths about happiness, and much more.

Ven. Tenzin will introduce the topics and lead brief reflection meditations. Participants will be invited to join in discussion, asking questions and sharing experiences.

Drop in on any session. No background required – just come with an open mind. All are welcome!

About the Teacher:

Venerable Losang Drimay was born in California in 1960. She has a B.A. in Asian Studies and has traveled extensively in Asia, but actually met her Tibetan lamas here in the United States. She has been studying, practicing and working with centers in the FPMT since 1984, receiving hundreds of hours of classroom instruction from the many qualified lamas and senior teachers that frequent our Dharma centers.
She first lived on this Soquel property before it was actually Land of Medicine Buddha, back in 1989 when the organization’s international office (then called Central Office) was located here. While working at the office, she took ordination as a Buddhist nun in 1991.
From 2001 to 2012, Ven. Drimay served as resident teacher of Ocean of Compassion (Gyalwa Gyatso) Buddhist Center in Campbell (San Jose), California, also living and serving at Land of Medicine Buddha for part of that time. In 2012, she became full-time at Land of Medicine Buddha, continuing to lead regular meditations and classes, as well as picking up some other duties.
